and are you the prodigal, or are you the son
who acts like a servant with all undue cause?
rejected relationship, resented, and fumed,
and acted un-thought-of, though he truly was.
opportunity knocks - so act on your chances
don't gloat at the sight of the fall of another!
work on you, and don't worry about what he'll become.
he's not competition, you see, he's your brother.
[you see, i was listening to the sermon,
though it may not have appeared that way]
